So, oops, no pictures, but I did find a pretty nice unpaved trail near my house! It was also sunset/twilight so it was probably really dumb to go on it especially since it has rocks everywhere, but this week’s training is mostly walking with a free form run at the end so it was all good. The jogging drills did all happen to fall on steeply uphill bits :U
Opal was excited to get out running again :) She is so great! She listened to all of my speed and direction cues and because of that I didn’t slip once.
The only other unpaved trails I know about are less than ideal - one is rife with gang activity (not as much of an issue if I go at 7am on a Saturday) and waaaayyyy short; the other I have to cross a stream to get to the trail. There’s a big pipe you can walk across but Opal’s not comfortable doing that, and she won’t follow through the water if I walk across the pipe. Running with wet feet gives me blisters and then, a couple hours later, feet so swollen and itchy I can’t walk on them. Not ideal. ;P
